The Book of the Dragon

EN ESPAÑOL

The magic of dragons-soaring above castle spires, setting
the world aflame—bursts into glowing life in breathtaking images by a major artist.
An unforgettably original volume, The Book of the Dragon
offers a glimpse of a culture we can only imagine.
Dragons lurk in the most hidden corners of the world: the powerful and beautiful creatures known as dragons.
We know them as the terrifying beasts of fairy tales, but
their own story has remained a mystery-until now.
Ciruelo, an illustrator of astounding skill, delves into their
secret universe, revealing a rich and fascinating culture
filled with poetry, magic, enchantment, and knowledge.
Each of these wondrous creatures has its own unique personality and history, and it's captured dramatically on
these spectacular pages. But the revelations go beyond
the images, as we gain insight into their psychological characteristics; encounter many different types (Earth
Dragons, Water Dragons, Fire Dragons, and the legendary Golden Dragon); learn about their long-held customs;
and explore the many legends in which they have figured
so prominently-including the heroic tales of Perseus,
Hercules, and Tristan.
